Can someone help me with this? I am on the 3rd row of the lace pattern for the Monkey socks, and am hopelessly confused.
The instructions say to do this for each needle (16 stitches on each of 4 needles):
[P3, k2tog, k3, yo2, k3, ssk, p3] to end.
So. I purl 3 stitches, do the k2tog, knit 3, 2 yarn-overs, knit 3, ssk, and I have ONE stitch left, because I've decreased two. Yes, I did increase two as well, but those aren't available for purling at the end. Someone please tell me what I did wrong so I can continue on with the pattern? It is knitting up nicely with the STR, but I am thinking I must be messed up because I've never done lace of any kind before.
I have searched the Internet, and all I find is people saying what a great, well-written pattern this is, so it's clearly me. Help!
